"For five or six years, I suffered agon

Often, I couldn't sit up more than a
few minutes at a time, and If I stood
on my feet long, I would faint.
I took Cardul, and it helped me Im
mediately. Now, I can do my work all
the time, and don't suffer like I did."
Take Cardul when you feel 111 In any

the weather. Cardul U a strength
building tonic medicine for women.
It has been found to relieve pain and
distress caused by womanly troubles,
and Is an excellent medicine to have on

Cardul acts on the womanly consti

toning up the nerves, and regulating
the womanly organs.
Its half century of success Is due to

vice at Tom Roberts' hop.
The patrons of our fust class hotels anJ restaurants arc exact
ing they demand the best. Women go where the pastry and cakes
are noted for their excellence. Men arc attracted by hot bread and
biscuits when fresh and moist and light.
The pastry cook with a reputation uses K C B iking Powder
because he knows that results are certain; every time everything
is as good as his best.
Then, too, with K C Baking Powder he can mix lac various
kinds of batter before the rush of the meal begins and bake as
needed so that every order goes to t lie table fresh and hot, yet the
last he bakes are just as good as the first.
The reasons behind these reasons is that K C Is
really a blend of two baking powders. One commences
to give off leavening gas as soon as moistened. '1T.2
other requires both moisture and heat t ) make it
active. Dough or batter will remain in a partially
leavened condition for hours, and when put i.i the oven,
will conic up as light as if mixed a moment before.
For cookies, pancakes, doughnuts and the like,
which cannot all be baked at once, K C is indispensa
ble. For all baking the double raise makes doubly certain.
